A catch-all feature that is activated for a given mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain name, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you run some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to get only legitimate emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting package with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated package with us. The hosting account will be managed via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you will have to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the same way and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain, you’ll receive a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never alter or disable any feature automatically.
